  • Union nabs pair of Cougar...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – After transferring to Bullitt Central from Jeffersonville High school in southern Indiana, Cameron Mallory was a player out of position.

    Veteran Bullitt Central head coach Danny Leasor admits now that he tried to put a square peg in a round hole by putting Mallory at a cornerback position. The foot speed was not there and Mallory was giving up big plays.

  • Region 3 wrestling action set...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – The three Bullitt County wrestling programs will compete this weekend in the Region Three Championships at Pleasure Ridge Park High School with a number of Bullitt Central and Bullitt East athletes expected to make runs at individual honors.

    On the team front, it appears that Fern Creek is the team to beat and that might be a tall order for any of the other dozen teams in the region. Still, along with Doss, the Chargers and Cougars could well be in the hunt for a top three team finish.

  • Eagles grab No. 1 seed; BE No. 1...

    SHEPHERDSVILLE – It was raining three-pointers on Tuesday as the North Bullitt Eagles bombed visiting Evangel 101-62 in a 23rd District clash.

    With a little help from Moore 90 minutes later when they upset Southern, North Bullitt earned the top seed for the 23rd District Tournament with a 3-1 mark. If Bullitt Central defeats Evangel on Tuesday, the Cougars will also have a 3-1 mark in the district, but have a loss to the Eagles. Unless Bullitt Central loses to Evangel, Moore will be the number three seed with Southern fourth and Evangel fifth.

  • Five ways to save money for...

     FRANKFORT - Although the price of a gallon of gas is lower than at any time in recent memory, not many folks have extra money to burn.

    This is especially true for non-essential things such as fishing reels, shotguns, hunting clothing or fishing waders. Adult commitments such as your mortgage must be paid before any money goes toward a new spinning reel. Obtaining quality hunting and fishing gear inexpensively is a useful skill for outdoors enthusiasts to learn.

  • Local teams shine at Eagles’...

     HEBRON ESTATES - The best young archers in the area converged on North Bullitt on Friday and Saturday for the Eagle Invitational with 750 shooters taking part at the elementary, middle school and high school levels.

    As is often the case, the Bullitt County teams did quite well, winning four of the nine team trophies as well as 18 of the 30 individual awards.

    On the team level the top three entries were presented trophies.

    Middle Schools: 1st, Eastside, 3167; 3rd, Hebron, 3034; 5th Eastside (2), 2926.

  • Lots of basketball to be played...

     SHEPHERDSVILLE – With the two Louisville Invitational Tournaments now in the rear view mirror, the high school basketball season is now officially in the homestretch.

    With just over two weeks remaining in the regular season, coaches are now fine-tuning things and starting to prepare for the post-season.

  • East gets two chances but can’t...

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – After rallying from an eight point deficit entering the fourth quarter, Bullitt East had a pair of chances in the final 10 seconds to knock off Fifth Region power Bardstown on Friday, but came up short both times.

    The 56-54 Bardstown win continued a recent valley for Bullitt East late in the season. Since beating Manual in the quarter-finals of the Boys’ LIT, the Chargers have lost five of six.

  • Eagles sweep pair from Thomas...

     HEBRON ESTATES – No school, no problem for the two North Bullitt basketball teams on Monday.

    Despite being out of school as part of a planned day off, the two teams played host to Thomas Nelson High School, the newest school in Nelson County and both games went to the teams dressed in green and gold by hearty margins.

  • BC is not match for Manual in LIT

    LOUISVILLE – Even during the best of times, the Manual Lady Crimsons would have been a lot for the Bullitt Central Lady Cougars to handle.

         Unfortunately, these are not the best of times for the maroon and gray. Injuries have decimated the team. On Tuesday, in the program’s first trip ever to the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament, three starters sat on the bench in street clothes next to head coach Kyle Roach.

  • Mercy closes out BE with the...

    LOUISVILLE – Battling back from a 14-point deficit midway through the third quarter, the Bullitt East Lady Chargers seemingly had arch-rival Mercy right where they wanted them down the stretch of the second round game in the Republic Bank/Coca-Cola Girls’ Louisville Invitational Tournament on Wednesday.
